comment Is it feasible to measure the energy of cosmic ray muons with a consumer Digital Single Lens Reflex camera?
@dmckee What about a rough energy measure? After all I have very dark pixels (due to dark current) and the bright pixels (not saturated) due to muons... I already have a sort of relative measure, isn't it?

@dmckee Thank you for your answer! I am afraid I can't afford a custom lens for a home made RICH detector :-)

No, the frequency is still to low also with $d=11mm$.

comment Is it possible to estimate the speed of wind by the sound emitted by a cable of an overhead power line?
No, I am not sure. With public available info I can say the thinner wire could have $d=11mm$.

comment Is it possible to estimate the speed of wind by the sound emitted by a cable of an overhead power line?
Thanks! I plugged in some number but the frequency I get is quite low compared to what I heard. For example with $d=30mm$ I get $f=183Hz$ when $V=100km/h$; I think I heard a sound with an higher frequency with a much lighter wind.
